Just Because

ChristyUncategorized13 Comments

This card was my sister’s idea. She sent me a text one day at 8:02 am that said You should make a card the bees and have it say “just -beecause” or “thanks for bee-ing you.” I chuckled at the pun, then rolled back over and went to sleep.

My family on the east coast has a tendency to wake me up with phone calls and texts. It’s like time zones don’t exist to them. Dear Family, I love you, but it’s 3 hours earlier here and I don’t have a job. Stop waking me up before 10. Love, Christy.

Anyway, many weeks later I was poking around the Hambo website and noticed these stamps, which brought back the vague memory of that early-morning text. And so I had to have them.

The Tiny Bee stamp is really tiny (like a half-inch), and I lub it. The whole card is only 4 inches by 3 inches. For the background, I used Wild Honey Distress Ink, and stamped onto scrap paper before stamping on the card so that the image would be lighter. The 3 man bees were stamped with Memento and colored with Copics.

Paper: Bazzill Linen, Xpress It blending card
Ink: Distress Ink – Wild Honey; Memento – Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Tiny Bee 3114; Just Bee-Cause1627 – Hambo
Copics: YR21, 24, Colorless Blender
Other: 3D Dots

    Adorable! My old school's mascot is the bee so I have quite a collection of bee stamps that I hardly ever use anymore! Gotta get them out again. Thanks for the reminder! Thanks for playing in the WoodwareUSA challenge this week. Good luck! Kerry
